of the united states is at 47%. now, sometimes folks simply don't vote. certainly number built into participating. but 47%, which the obama people thought was the magic number that would put mitt romney into water, this stage what you mentioned it. is not an entirely happy number for barack obama spent and i'm not saying that the election is over. this is in the zone of uncertainty, where lots of things can happen, 12 years ago when george bush was ahead three to six points, depending on the poll and news of his drunk driving arrest. and just stopped his progress but he didn't lose votes but he gained no votes. and al gore stormed and if i did kerry to win the popular vote. and who knows what the next 12 days are going to bring. but looking at the data carefully, i don't want to discount the possibility that michael is right at all. far from me to do that. i just think there's lots of reasons i think that in ohio, it's looking a little stronger for obama than it is for from the. and that the opportunities to win an electoral victory absence of late 1980 break against the presid

's iraq, the first shia arab led state in history is iraq, but we never mention that. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact today that for the first time america and one of america's key regional pillars, egypt, is in place strategically. you doesn't mean they have to become pro-iranian. they are just in play. they're no longer reflective pro-american the iranian military the first time in 30 years can go through the suez. iran doesn't need syria anymore. american elites have a very hard time coming to terms with these facts. and an even harder time coming to terms with the reality that the arab awakening is accelerating erosion of american standing and position in the middle east, not iran's. but rather than face this reality, americans embrace, particularly elites here in washington, embrace the logic defined proposition that the same drivers of political change and powering islamists in arab countries will somehow transform the islamic republic into a secular liberal state. it is a logic defying proposition. still, reality is what it is. on the eve of 9/11, just over 1
disappeared from the united states, and we conquered smallpox in the americas in 1971 and worldwide in 1977, sort of lent us confidence that really, there wasn't much that we couldn't do. as a result, the center began to diversify, to broaden its focus. and so we expanded into chronic disease areas. the national institute for occupational safety and health was incorporated into cdc in the early 1970s. much more recently, we've gotten into areas surrounding injury control and prevention. and of course we realized in the last few years that the infectious disease agenda is not over. certainly it's not in the developing world where it still causes a very heavy burden. apart from what aids is doing as probably the most egregious example that we've seen in our lifetimes, having surpassed malaria as the largest killer of people in africa, is tuberculosis, for which we've had good drugs, haven't used them wisely or enough in years past to reduce some of the problems that we're seeing today. and that's getting more and more serious now with multiply resistant strains of tuberculosis. tuberculosis i

[applause] president calvin coolage once remarked that the business of america is business. his words are as true today as they were when he said them nearly 100 years ago. small business drives our economy, fuels or communities and feeds our families. [applause] small businesses like ours represent 97.8% of all employers. we employ half of america's work force and create between 60 respect -- 60% and 80% of job growth in the country. we know how very important those jobs numbers are. i imagine you feel like i do. i need my job, and so do our employees. thankfully here at ball we have secure jobs. you will see trucks coming and going from a long hard day any minute now. i can't imagine the stres
's been very clear. the president of the united states owes the american people candor and transparency on what's happened. that clearly has been a test which has been failed. they started talking about the spontaneous eruption that was incredible on 9/11, and this is a video that's been around for months. second, we have the type of equipment used. third, we now know there were intelligence reports. fourth, wern the ambassador was concerned about the security, and fifth, we had a stonewalling for days and days with this very story. >> that's the key point with ambassador rice making the runs. larry, do you agree with rich williamson, larry, that, in fact, president obama owes the american people a clear, transparent explanation? >> i think he has given it. you have to remember everything rich said is contradicted by the director of national intelligence, general clapper, who was first appointed to the pentagon by the bush administration. he came out and he said, i gave them this information, and it was wrong. when we found out, i changed the narrative, and more important, obama's going
and we must consider rush are number one enemy. number three it angers and alienates the united states and number four increasing the eighth against turkey whose aragon regime is backing the rebels. why is russia doing this? n there is continued disunity in the ranks of the rebels although as of this morning reportedly there is another chance they say to unify. they hopefully moscow won't be able to oust aside a number to the u.s. and turkey as of yet have not been willing to extend their syrian brother of however turkish prime minister erdogan is his strong and continues to be provoked by syrian shelling the influx of refugees he may take action. this is why in recent baseball in the shelling in turkeys horsing down of syrian jet flight from moscow to damascus russia has tried to -- by increasing the supply of national gas to turkey to maintain good relations between russia and turkey despite what's happening in syria. conclusion, moscow is taking a major middle east gamble with his policy in syria. at the gamble fails, and i think it will, hopefully if the u.s. gets them little more
to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 is your line, and we'll get to your calls in just a couple moments. at this point, um, governor johnson, what's the strategy for the rest of the election? where are you focusing most of your time and attention right now? >> guest: oh, right now there's a lot of attention that's being drawn to what it is that i am saying. i'm being recognized now for being at 6% nationally. um, i'll just ask you an obvious question here t
worldwide of the united states military? two minutes, virgil goode. >> as i said, if i'm elected president i will balance the budget, and part of the cuts have to be in the department of defense. we cannot do as mitt romney and paul ryan suggest increase military funding by $2 trillion over the next decade. i support a strong defense. but we need to retrench rather than trying to be the policemen of the world. we have too many soldiers, too many troopers scattered around the world. our presence needs to be decreased around the world, not increased, and the united states should stop trying to be the overseer of the world. that will save us billions and billions of dollars. [applause] >> all right. governor johnson. >> we need to provide ourselves with a strong national defense. the operative word here is defense, not offense and not nation building. [applause] >> the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, that we're borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. in promising to submit a balanced budget to congress in the ye

[cheers and applause] second, my plan will cut our oil imports in half by 2020 so we control more of our own energy here in america. megyn: and here's a look at why the president stayed in florida after last night's debate in boca raton. the latest polling average from realclearpolitics.com that averages all the polls shows romney leading among likely voters with nearly 48.5% and the president averaging around 46.5%. if you look at the more recent polling, it looks very much in governor romney's favor. we've told you earlier that suffolk polling pulled out a while back saying they don't believe that's competitive any longer although clearly team obama disagrees with that. critical state, as you know, in this election. governor romney, meantime, now working to shore up support in the nevada with paul ryan. the pair set to appear in henderson together just about a couple of hours from now. nevada is another battleground this year, and you can see why the governor is there. t
opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my blueprint for america to get an economy and stronger jobs. the question is which one of us can be accounted upon. you may have read an article that was comparing our two governorships. the call me when the most accomplished modern governors with major improvements in public education, safety, welfare reform, a
'll win this election again. we'll finish what we started and we'll remind the world why the united states of america is the greatest nation on earth. >> mitt romney knows his chances of winning the presidency are slim without ohio, regardless of what the national polls say. romney scheduled multiple events in the state of ohio over the next several days as well as events in other swing states. he was in iowa today making the hard sell for voters to abandon president obama. >> i want to ask you for a commitment. that's for you to find one person who voted for barack obama last time and convince him to come our team. maybe more than one. i need your help to do that. >> romney is striking while the iron is hot. he's continuing to jab president obama in his stump speech. >> these are tough times with serious issues. so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. >> this new aggressiveness was influenced by those close est t home. romney's sons have taken a more creative role in crafting his campaign. josh romney showed the aggressive ro
of the special interest loopholes and here is the amazing part, that bill passed the united states senate 97-3. that is bipartisanship. call me optimist but i think there is the opportunity to get that deal. >>neil: conservatives were critical of ronald reagan for giving away allowances and breaks. but he did so to get a deal. that was called "negotiating." >>guest: in the end it was a great deal. the only problem was what has happened in the subsequent 25 years we keep adding to the tax code all o the garbage and all of the termites that are destroying the tax system. i like the idea of a reform and i would not, i do think there is a chance we could get entitlement reform which is harder than the tax reform. >>neil: i think you are right, steve. thank you very much. >>guest: optimistic today. >>neil: call it a demand for apple's iphone with sales chiling more than 1 percent, with the launch of the new iphone 5 fueling that increase because electronics-related sales surged 4.5 percent but high gas prices pushed the sales higher. is this economy really strengthening? my guest is not buying it
. that was the recommendation in the oval office to the president of united states of america. i sat there. i am sure you will find someone who disagrees with the pentagon. i am positive you will find that within the military. that is not the case here. host: does one of the several clips we will show you during the first 45 minutes. but your thoughts on the roles of the moderator. let us start with a tweet. he says -- in both debates but moderators acted as a big lead democrats are good and republicans can sometimes be good, maybe. here is a call on the democrat's line. from texas, arleen. caller: the first one was not so good. the lady thursday night i think was good, but she was more on foreign policy -- i wished there would have been more on the economy and jobs. that is what you are looking for? caller: yes. and i think joe biden did a great job. host: what about martha raddatz 's style? caller: they did not go overboard. like the first debate. she kind of maintained it very well. host: on our line for republicans, walter, from indiana. caller: good morning. i do not know what the first color was wa
handling of the 9/11 attack in libya? >> when the vice president of the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony, of state department officials, american citizens have a right to know just what's going on. and we're going to find out. >> we cover it all this morning with our own debate. joining the conversation, virginia's republican governor bob mcdonnell. former democratic governor of michigan jennifer granholm. atlanta's democratic mayor kasim reed. republican strategist alex castellanos. and nbc's tom brokaw. >>> and later, politics, satire, and lots of laughs. i go one-on-one with stephen colbert. in character -- >> i don't really watch the news so much. i come in around 6:30 and i just say the opposite of whatever rachel maddow says the night before. and comedy just helps an idea go down. that's all. and it just makes you listen for a minute. >>> from nbc news in washington, "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. it is a critical time in the race for the white house now. over the next eight days, think about it, we'll see the final two
. this is in response, not to united states policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to american people. it is in response to a video. a film... that... we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. that in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. but this is not a case of... protests directed at the united states, at large or at u.s. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive and... to muslims. we have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. >> sean: all right. so did you hear what he just said? he said the administration had no information -- none to suggest that was a pre-planned attack. and yet, two hours after it began, al qaeda claimed responsibility. so that was the big lie on september 14. now you fast forward a few days later. and here's what we were told, one week after the assault. >> our initial information -- and that includes all information -- we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack, that we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. and that is what we
and they can say that the president of the united states and united states of america has stood on the right side of history. >> brian: with the arab spripping nothing positive. >> steve: i was amazed romney didn't bring up the muslim brotherhood ledd to extremist back in power. >> but the women's vote in the debate. one of the big things romney accomplished talking about how he is peace love not support war and he didn't think we needed to go to war in iran or send froopps in syria and all of that stuff was to debunk the idea the idea that he is a warmongered. women were worried he was a bush 43 shoot fromm the hip and he over that. the main thing that happened last night was not foreign policy. romney won the economic debate . obama's view on the economy is ridiculouss and doesn't defend his record well i think it will continue. rumny's momentum to the nomination. i think it will be unslackened and accelerate and more confident than ever we will have rum rhumb will have a land slide. 48 percent in the popular and 300 to 350 in the electoral vote. >> brian: out on a limb. >> i live on the l
, particularly in the united states where we think there are some messages that are not sufficiently understood. and that's what, i hope, you will be hearing throughout the day today. and the messages at this event are focused on four issues; u.s. competitiveness, the future of jobs, economic growth -- which is tied, of course, to the first two -- and then the revival of our cities with detroit as case study number one. we are very proud to be in detroit because we see it as a great city that has incredible potential that we would just love to help participate in that dialogue to help move that process forward a little faster. but what we really want to do is change the dialogue about how the world thinks about technology. because we really don't think it is understood or appreciated how rapidly the entire landscape is shifting because of tech. i mean, today apple's literally announcing the next iphone. that's cool, but that's just the most obvious example of things that continue to move at astonishing speed, and there's developments literally everywhere you look. and we don't think leaders gen
storm, they say potentially devastating the northeast united states. how bad will it actually be? we have the latest forecast. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now only eleven days -- we're now only eleven days from the president election, and nowhere is the campaign battle being waged more fiercely than in the battleground state of ohio. 18 electoral votes are at stake there. president obama took them in 2008. our brand new cnn/orc poll is just coming in and it shows president obama leading in ohio right now 50% to mitt romney's 46%. but that's within the sampling error. it's a statistical tie in other words. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us. john, break down the numbers for us. no state right now is more important than ohio. >> you can make that case. no state is more important than ohio. you mention it's within the margin of error but yet another poll showing the president with a small lead in ohio. he's had that pretty much across the general election season. what's driving it right now? in a battleground state like ohio, the pre
in the united states. not just montana. they are competing with other emerging economies across the planet. we have to invest in our cells. -- in ourselves. i was astonished knowing the importance of a quality education when my opponent voted to slash grants and voted to increase the interest payments on student loans. that is how i went to school. that is how thousands of nevada at middle income families go to school. they depend on it. my opponent voted to slash. and he in -- he voted to double. as far as the department of education is concerned, at the lincoln county dinner, he very clearly said it is exactly what he would do, eliminate the department of education. it was picked up by "the times." >> thank you. >> that is not accurate but that is fine. i am not surprised she will continue with that. my opponent in 2010 voted against the loan program. it helped generations of americans get their education. she has to be careful with what she said. my wife is a schoolteacher. she taught school and works within school districts. she understands the importance of parents, teachers, and principl
. >> the romneys had left the united states and went to mexico to avoid persecution, but it's also to pursue polygamy. >> narrator: miles romney had five wives and 30 children. >> they built a ranch and he's back in stone age conditions with no money. romney's father is now on the scene. that gets destroyed by guerrillas. they move back to california, poverty again. they build it back up. they move back to salt lake city. they build it back up. romney's whole history of a family is that they knocked us down, we built it back up. we didn't make a fortune; we made a bunch of fortunes. and they resented us for our success, but we kept coming back. that's romney's history. >> with someone with a name with romney you heard about the sufferings of your ancestors and their sacrifices and all they've done that you feel like, well, it's my turn now; i've got to pick up the baton and run with it. >> narrator: but mitt and his family rarely tell the story to outsiders. >> it's an incredible history. he can't talk about it because it involves polygamy. and so if the core of your personality is something
question. a few days after our presidential election here in the united states, china will be transitioning to a new leadership. the new generation of leaders will guide china probably through the next decade. if given a second term to how does president obama see the opportunities in the transition? what measures with the president propose to take the new heads of state relationship? >> well, president obama reached out to hu jintao right after president obama was elected. and right after he took office. he's met with hu jintao more than any previous president had met with a counterpart. they have met something upwards of a dozen times. many phone calls. i'm sure that this pattern will continue with the next chinese leadership. the chinese haven't done us a favor yet of telling us who will be in the new leadership. that will be announced on november 8. i think we're all confident we know that the general secretary of the congress party will be xi jinping. will have a pretty good idea of at least four members of the politburo standing committee, and perhaps other members. i think, the impor
